Paul Merson has suggested to talkSPORT that Everton striker Romelu Lukaku would be a good signing for Arsenal.

The former Arsenal attacker believes that the Belgium international would be a good addition to the current squad of the North London outfit, but only at the right price.

"I think he's a bit different, a bit stronger up front which would help Arsenal,” Merson told talkSPORT when asked if Lukaku would interest Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

"I can see why Chelsea let him go; he was one of them that needed the ball over the top. But he was a young kid and I think he's learnt his trade now. It just depends how much he is."
